The Tanzania Cricket Association has revealed that several of its players have spent the summer honing their skills with a club side in Watford, England.

“We've the most brilliant guys as compared to other countries, so it's down to us to drill them thoroughly," board chairman Zulfikar Rhemtullah said. “We're eagerly waiting for them and it's our hope that the quartet will steer the national team to glory.

“They've learnt a lot in England and through them, other local lads will learn some advanced techniques.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
